The sad truth is that most of the people that work at the Amazon distribution sites are Red State voters. Amazon pulls from the RV Retiree set (big Repub stronghold) and blue collar laborers (also mostly conservative, though that means Dem as often as Repub in the South, but almost always Repub in the North, unless they are in a union, which Amazon would never allow.)

So I see less leverage here than you imply.
